A true Role Model creating a better world

Natasha Mansley and John Parry receiving the Better World Award Natasha Mansley and John Parry received the Better World Award at the University's Education Awards

We are very proud to announce that Natasha Mansley, coordinator of the hugely successful Role Models Project run by the Students' Union, won the Better World Award at the University’s Education Awards last week. 

Tasha, as she is know here at the Students' Union, received the award in conjunction with John Parry (Role Models module convenor at the University) for the collaboration between the Students’ Union and Education and Social Work called The Role Models Project. Role Models is a peer-led mentoring project which trains Sussex undergraduate students in participatory facilitation in order to create and deliver workshops in local schools.

From the Awards website:

"The Better World Award...recognises staff who are actively engaged in efforts to make a positive impact in the local community and wider world in creative and entrepreneurial ways. In particular this award will recognise where community engagement has been built into the curriculum."

Congratulations, Tasha, for making a hugely positive impact in our community, and helping to inspire and support young people in our local schools.
